Type B-11 parka sizing question
« on: October 01, 2016, 02:28:54 AM »
I'm currently after a B-11 parka and I want to know roughly how much over sized they were?

For example, I'm inbetween a 40 - 42" and wanted to know which B-11 size would fit me with only say a shirt underneath.

I'm guesstimating a size 38" might do but would like your thoughts.

Cheers,
Neil.

Neil just sent you a text  ;)

They are over sized as they were meant to be worn over the B15 jacket . I'm not sure if the B11 size label corresponds to the actual parka or the jacket they were meant to be worn over .
Im sure some of the flight trouser sizes are actually the chest size !  :o

Carl, what size chest are you normally and how roomy is the size 38 B-11 on you?
